WILL PRIDE DESTROY AMERICA?

Genesis 36 in the Bible deals entirely with the family of Esau, which became the nation of Edom. Although it may be rather boring to the average person to read about all the names from that Middle East era, our military today is now engaged there and Saddam Hussein was used as the excuse. I wish someone would explain the real reason, which is sin by Abraham and Sarah. God promised Abraham a son but when his wife Sarah didn’t conceive immediately, she convinced Abraham to sleep with her handmaiden, Hagar. Hagar gave birth to Ishmael, who now represents the radical Arabs and after Sarah later gave birth to Isaac who represents the Israelites, America’s ally, Sarah convinced Abraham to kick Hagar and Ishmael out. The descendants of these half brothers hate each other.
Isaac married and his wife gave birth to Esau and Jacob. Isaac’s first born, Esau, was promised a special blessing but Jacob and his mother deceived old, blind Isaac while Esau was out hunting one day, and Isaac ended up giving the blessing to momma’s boy, Jacob. I’m no Bible scholar and I hope I got the story correct, but the whole episode will remind readers how sin and deception cause nations problems today including America, the country founded by divine providence.
In Genesis 36 we see Esau a few years later under a microscope and the nation of Edom filled with pride and God said to Edom: “The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwelleth in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high, that saith in his heart, who shall bring me down to the ground? Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set they nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the Lord.” (Obad. 1:3-4)
When I read this scripture, America came to mind. Even liberal newspapers are printing articles about more failures in the financial world and signs of an economic Armageddon were mentioned regarding the special “closed session” of the U.S. House of Representatives in March. Of course, talking points by the positive thinker crowd to calm the waters is saying America will survive and I’m sure there were these types on the Titanic who pushed women and children aside as they scrambled to get in the lifeboats. The latest is the probable bailout of the unconstitutionally government-created large mortgage corporations, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, sticking the taxpayers with the bill. If these two agencies were being closely regulated and monitored by the federal government, why are they in melt down today? And then we have California’s bank failure, Indymac that wasn’t even on the Federal “troubled” bank list. Australia is putting a 60-day hold on all money transactions such as money orders, cashier’s checks, etc. Are other countries doing the same? Doesn’t that tell Americans something? Our elected officials who sit on these oversight committees are totally inept and should be held accountable but won’t be as they hide in their underground bunkers when the feathers hit the fan.
While some predict gloom and doom, others stand up and with pride declare that America is strong and nothing will befall it. We are the original do-it-yourselfers. We are strong. We are infallible. We will survive anything that is thrown at us. Don’t we have the mighty, powerful eagle as our American symbol and haven’t those in the NASA program built a nest among the stars?
In a letter discussing their new banking scheme with fellow conspirators, the Rothschild Brothers of London on June 25, 1863 stated: “The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors that there will be no opposition from that class. The great body of people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages will bear its burden without complaint.”
After reading the preceding statement by the money manipulators, it would be wise to consider this secret communiqué circulated among the leading U.S. Bankers only, way back in 1934, entitled:
“Capital must protect itself in every way… Debts must be collected and loans and mortgages foreclosed as soon as possible. When through a process of law the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and more easily governed by the STRONG ARM OF THE LAW (Cops) applied by the central power of leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. This is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of capitalism to govern the world. By dividing the people we can get them to expend their energies infighting over questions of no importance to us except TEACHERS OF THE COMMON HERD. (Taken from the Civil Servants’ Year Book, “The Organizer, Jan. 1934.)
In June 2006, it was predicted at a Bilderberg Conference by the President of the New York Federal Reserve bank that rising interest rates and difficulties for families that have obtained adjustable rate mortgages with variable interest rates were likely to lose their homes as rising home mortgage rates added hundreds of dollars to their monthly payments. While most in attendance listened solemnly and some expressed concern, one was heard to say, “Stupid Americans deserve their fate.” President George W. Bush’s economic advisor, Allen Hubbard, was sitting in the front row. Abraham Lincoln said, “Whoever deprives men or women of land and a home of their own upon the earth not only dispossesses his fellow-men of their rights, but flies in the face of God’s law, and is defying him in puny, though merciless and wicked disobedience.”
The signs of a dying once robust US economy are all around us. There seem to be in my community lots of minimum-wage paying service jobs but the ones that can feed a family are limited. Check out this website to learn about our debt. George Soros, a Hungarian-born U.S. citizen, a veteran member of the Council on Foreign Relations which advocates one-world government and who is perhaps the world’s best known currency manipulator said in a June 1, 2008 Daily Telegraph out of London, England “We are in the midst of the worst financial crisis since the 1930s.” Current conditions are familiar to old-timers still living from that era that they are much like the calculated ‘shearing’ of the sheep by the world-money bank$ter$ in 1928-1929 and the Great Depression which followed for about ten years and then World War II and FDR’s New Deal. The Avon Park, Fla.
Times under the heading “President Roosevelt Must Choose” says: “This New Deal monster is not Democratic, it is not American, it is not white. Its economic theories, the governmental plans, its social equality laws are importations from mongrel Soviet Russia….” For most of America’s history up until the “New Deal,” families, churches, and private charitable groups did most of the work of caring for the needs of the most vulnerable members of society. The Tragedy of American Compassion by Marvin Olasky does an excellent job of explaining how the government slowly took over many of the service activities families and communities used to do for themselves. And this is about the time “democracy” (Man’s government/Humanism) accelerated and replaced our treasured Republic (Representative government based on God’s law) which our Founders gave to us. Democracy has given us mobocracy (special interest lobbies), centralized government (tyranny/socialism) and unlawful taxation (confiscation).
Readers will recall that the Federal Reserve created in 1913 gave the international bank$ster$ much power to flood the nation with new currency to create a temporary boom and then they can retract the amount of currency and bring on a recession, even a depression. But what will be different this time around is that our spoiled, materialistic, secular Humanist “ME entitlement” society is ill prepared for what could make the first ’29 crash look like a Sunday school picnic. While some committed suicide back in ’29, we still had a rugged individualistic society who survived that crash with sacrifices and a certain degree of civility. If this “crash” becomes a reality, will the President declare Martial Law due to chaos? Remember, nothing happens by accident in government.
But dwelleth in the clefts of the rocks brought to mind the May 7, 2008 Washington Post article by Mary Beth Sheridan describing the eight-day disaster exercise by the Department of Homeland Security that put high government officials from Washington, D.C. into underground facilities in the mountains and caves of Virginia known as Continuity of Government (COG). On July 18, 2007 Oregon’s Democrat, Congressman Peter DeFazio and a member of the U.S. House committee on Homeland Security was denied access to the classified version of the COG and concluded, “Maybe the people who think there’s a conspiracy out there are right.” The Constitutional Party candidate for the presidency, Chuck Baldwin, wrote “Are We Headed for Jericho?” If we are so strong, why are these lickspittles hiding in caves reminiscent of Revelation 6:15-17. What do they know that they aren’t sharing with us and won’t even share with a Congressman who requests information which proves even further that our once cherished Republic has been reduced to that often-mentioned “Democracy” where centralized government exists and tyranny rules.
In the past America was strong and I believe blessed by God but America in general has decided it has no need for Creator God or His laws and have turned its back on Him. The last two generations of children in the public schools have been indoctrinated with the religion of Humanism (so declared by the US Supreme Court in Torcaso v. Watkins). The Values Clarification handbook for teachers said we must constantly decide how to live our lives and “young people brought up by moralizing adults are not prepared to make their own responsible choice” so the system trains them to become their own god. Yes, America can pull itself up by its bootstraps. We are self-sufficient but are we?
We celebrated Independence Day on the Fourth of July but was it independence or a ruse as NWV contributor, Joan Veon questions in her excellent article? She asks, “Are we really free?” And then goes on to explain how we’ve been brought back under British rule and the charade goes back to 1794. While our unconstitutional worthless Federal Reserve notes (Fiat paper money) has a mixture of occult symbols on it, our coins still say “In God We Trust.” Many of our earlier official documents referred to God but we have strayed far from our Creator. Psychology and the self-esteem movement is now our religion. If Jesus would visit Calvary today in the flesh as he did more than 2000 years ago, would He ask, “If you are okay, and I’m okay, why am I on this Cross?”
Is our once Godly country reaping the consequences of our refusal to follow Godly principles? Gay men and lesbians until the 1970s were told by mental health professionals that they were diseased and depraved but in May 2008, The California Supreme Court allowed the homosexual community to marry. Today, the mental health establishment has convinced the U.S. government to fund and promote extensive mental health screening and follow up treatment for children.
One has to wonder how far this transformation of mental health services will go as more and more people become consumers of these services and as psychological change agents alter citizens’ thinking, feeling, and behaving. While the goal may not be mind control as in George Orwell’s political fiction Nineteen Eighty Four, the end result could very well be social consensus, conformity, and compliance as human service agencies gain authority over the populace. Representative Ron Paul has been quoted as saying, “Soviet communists attempted to paint all opposition to the state as mental illness. It now seems our own federal government wants to create a therapeutic nanny state, beginning with school children.”

We know that the mysterious project in Alaska called High Frequency Active, Auroral, Research Project aka HAARP can manipulate the weather but is it coincidental that five weeks after this Supreme Court decision, California began to burn? Is it God-ordained or HAARP?
Weathermen say it is unusual.
Shouldn’t we be concerned that it wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark. People in his day were marrying, working, having children and life seemed good until it started to rain.
